This New York native of Puerto Rican and Chinese descent first caught our eye when he was cast in the gritty HBO series Oz, as inmate Miguel Alvarez. With a trademark raspy voice and talent for playing unsavory characters with tortured souls he’s impossible to forget. Acevedo has appeared in bigger films such as Boiler Room, Terrence Malik’s The Thin Red Line and Invincible opposite Mark Wahlberg. Most recently he’s appeared on The Walking Dead and last summer’s Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Perhaps roles in mainstream titles and bankable hits like these will get Acevedo more starring roles; he’s certainly got the chops for it.
